A theme that ran through Nav & Isaiah’s wedding at the end of June was two. Two faiths, two cities, two ceremonies, two hearts. Their wedding brought us all to Edmonton, Calgary and back to Edmonton for both Hindu wedding events, and a Christian ceremony.
Nav & Isaiah planned all of the wedding festivities themselves, in FOUR MONTHS. That is a huge feat, especially while living in two difference cities, and I think they did an amazing job.
Good things come to those who wait, and we couldn’t be happier for Nav & Isaiah who found each other. Congratulations you two!
Thanks to my second shooter Tessa for coming in from Canmore for the Cochrane wedding ceremony. After the flooding in Southern Alberta we weren’t sure if she was going to make it! Luckily the storm didn’t affect the wedding too much.
The ceremony was held at the Links at Gleneagles in Cochrane.
Isaiah’s niece thought she would be really helpful by cleaning up all of the petals the other girls had dropped.
This moment was a surprise for me. Isaiah is often matter of fact, to the point, and down to business (which explains how they could plan everything in such a short period of time!). His emotions couldn’t be contained when saying his vows, and it just shows how strong his love for Nav is.
Isaiah planned a romantic surprise for Nav – they released two doves during the ceremony (who are now likely enjoying a new home in the mountains!)
Isaiah’s sisters prepared a special performance for them at the reception.
Back in Edmonton, Nav had another ceremony to prepare for the Hindu wedding.
The last day of the wedding was intense! A Hindu ceremony and reception in one day at the Capilano Conference Centre in Edmonton. Second shooter Melissa helped me out with the Edmonton ceremony.
Beautiful makeup by Sonia Sajnani.
It wasn’t intentional, but we managed to get not only the Calgary city scape in their photos, but also the Edmonton skyline. Two skylines…
Sonia Sajnani was back again to prep Nav for the reception.
Isaiah was a good sport, he let the guys wrestle him into an Oiler’s jersey, despite his protests. If you marry an Edmonton girl, you’ve got to embrace our Oilers!!
